What Qualifies as a Catastrophic Injury?

Sometimes, accidents result in horrific injuries beyond simple repair. This is known as a catastrophic injury, in which victims suffer from permanent and life-altering damages. These injuries generally include those affecting one’s brain or spine, as they are sure to leave the victim mentally or physically handicapped. These injuries are common in serious car or truck accidents, construction accidents, sports accidents, and more. The more dangerous the aftereffects of the injury, the more expensive your medical bills and the longer your recovery time--in which case it is absolutely essential you hold the guilty parties responsible for all they have caused.

The following are common kinds of catastrophic injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Extreme burns
  • Organ damage
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Bone fractures
  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals and/or substances
  • Blindness or permanent hearing loss
  • Wrongful death

Determining the accurate value of how much a catastrophic injury will impact your life is difficult, especially if the injury is expected to be lifelong. Making sure you are properly compensated is essential to your future, your health, and your overall wellbeing.
